Poured into a snifter. A hazy bright yellow color with a sturdy white head. Great aroma with mango, strawberry, and oranges. Taste featured juicy oranges with resin, tropical notes, and very soft bitterness. Great soft feel and zero astringency. Just outstanding.

A: This beer pours an opaque orange-yellow color with a fluffy white head.

S: Sweet tropical fruits come through in the aroma. Lemon and ripe orange appear too.

T: Orange, peach, and pineapple dominate the flavor. It's sweet but not overly so - it has a dry quality which I appreciate. Hop juices all throughout. Bittersweet finish.

M: Pillowy soft complemented by carbonation.

O: This is my favorite so far from Trimtab, and really it's one of my favorite NEIPAs I've had so far. If you see this, buy it!

No canned on date, but released to the public on 01/10/2020.

The pour on this is mango juice gold. A weighty froth of head rises up on the pour to about a finger in height. As it falls, large patterns of lace decorate the glass.

You really can't beat that combination of Mosaic & Citra hops on the nose. It's candy sweet, featuring perfectly ripe mango, blueberries, mandarin orange, and candied grapefruit. On the back-end you get a touch of floral hops coming through, leaving the slightest hint of bitterness.

The palate boasts similar qualities to the nose, however is much more prominent in contrasting many of the sweeter, fruitier elements conveyed by the hops. Featuring elements of underripe pineapple, freshly cut grass, and a mildly earthy quality, the more organic nature of these hops shine through. As it opens up there's a subtle re-emergence of mango and citrus, but with more of that pithy, bitter quality.

The mouthfeel on this is great, and really sets it apart from other IPAs I've had from this series. Full and smooth, with a carbonation that isn't overly effervescent or distracting, but rather pillowy and more complimentary of that enveloping, juicy softness that drinks exactly like you want a 7.6% NE-Style Double IPA to drink.
